Art Journal Page Meets Mixed Media

Happy Happy Thursday My Sweet Friends

It's almost the weekend and I am ready.  What about you?  Any special plans?  I hope to get a lot of craft projects completed.  

The project I am sharing today is kind of special to me.  I have been wanting to start my own Art Journal along with some Mixed Media added in and this is my first page.  

I actually created this page a couple of months ago and don't really remember everything I did.  So I won't be able to share all the steps I took in putting this page together but I do remember some of the supplies I used. I will list them further down in this post.  The image I used is a digital image from Simply Betty Stamps and I boy do I love her images.  And since this journal is also going to be a form of art therapy for me I thought this Warrior image was the perfect way to begin.  And I did color her with Copics.  I am hoping to create a new page at least five days a week and so looking forward to having a full book one day.  

Supplies Used:

 Molding Paste
Rubber Stamps
Black Ink
Acrylic Paints (Various Colors)
I know there's a few more items and as soon as I remember I will update this post.

Thanks so much for spending some time with me and I appreciate your comments so much.

With hugs and smiles always

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
